Yalaleke Guzo


Yalaleke Guzo ("Unfinished Journey") is an Ethiopia-based talk show produced by PMC. The talk show started in 2020 and will air through 2022 in the Amharic language.

Yalaleke Guzo, along with PMC’s show Nekakat (“Cracked”), is contributing to the goal of the Ethiopian Government to achieve zero tolerance for FGM and child marriage by 2025.

Each 30-minute episode addresses issues in a variety of ways including short stories, interviews, poems with music, health tips, short audio plays, and features.



Making a Difference

It’s too soon to know the full impact Yalaleke Guzo will have. The goal of the talk show is to influence knowledge and attitudes of female genital mutilation in Ethiopia.
